This week’s crop of music is a fantastic blend of hardcore rappers, street afrobeats connoisseurs, sensual bops and heart strung lyrics.
Only You (Freestyle)- Moss
Moss is an excellent rapper. Weaving words on this track effortlessly, Moss moves from hyping his musical team to straight up bragging about his wordplay prowess. He lives up to the hype on this freestyle with the amazing background vocals, superb sound production and drill-esque delivery.
Have Fun- Bad Boy Timz
This upbeat is a fantastic club banger. This track is heavily inspired by street afrobeats music and has bold drums, loud pianos and vivacious indegenous lyrics. These are the perfect ingredients for an excellent tune.
Berlin- Logan February
Prolific poet, Logan February shows another facet of their talent with this beautiful love song. This song, produced by Sirbastien, is about a long distance love from Nigeria to Berlin Germany. Logan’s 80’s pop-synth inspired sounds are perfect to paint the picture of an almost-nostalgia of an out of reach love to listeners.
Damn (ft. 6LACK)- Omah Lay
The main kicker on this track is how 6LACK seamlessly inserts himself into this modern afrobeats song. In his signature soft delivery, he raps about how his love interest loves him despite his flaws. It would have been great to see Omah Lay change up some other parts of the song apart from the feature but all in all, it is a great listen.
Gra Gra- Timaya
Timaya is back on the scene with this song. Timaya urges listeners not to ”do gra gra” and work hard to get to the enviable positions they want. In Timaya fashion, the song is light hearted and is very influenced by traditional music.
Caro- Azanti & PsychoYP
Azanti and PsychoYP are a dynamic duo on this record. This track has wonderful undulating tracks with a dynamic pace. It is impossible to listen to this song without swaying to the amazing lyrics and delivery.
Muje- Barry Jhay
This record also hasheavy street music as well as fuji influences. Barry Jhay sings about wanting to be successful to be respected. His vocals as well as the production are excellent and crisp. The lyrics are full of deep meaning, talking about hardwork and praying that it all comes to fruition.
Nice and Sweet- Pandamonae
Pandamonae really tantalizes listeners’ ears with his vocals on this track. With its reggae dancehall influences, this song is not only an enjoyable listen, it’s also a great track to add to your dance playlist.
Better- Tomi Agape
The highly talented producer Juls, did a fantastic job on this fast paced sensual track by Tomi Agape. This very suggestive song by Tomi Agape is a hot, sultry listen accentuated by her beautiful vocals.
